The jig is up, the information is out, and the Feds have lastly discovered somebody keen to testify towards the renegade Oliver Queen. Simply on the heels of his wedding with Felicity, Oliver will quickly face the truth that somebody on his group is about to throw him underneath the bus, and it might be Wild Canine. When requested if his character was able to betraying Oliver if it meant getting custody of his daughter, actor Rick Gonzalez stated “completely”:
Completely, I believe there’s the potential for somebody of the agent’s caliber to have the flexibility to manage that situation meaning a lot to Rene. So, him eager to have custody of his daughter is completely an ideal, viable avenue for him to sort of need his footing and to carry onto it. All of it is determined by Rene’s perspective: Does he worth the integrity and the loyalty of the group, or does he care extra about getting Zoey again and defending that and honoring the promise he made to her? In the event you take a look at it from different views, there’s issues, I am certain, Agent Watson [could go] after the Black Canary [Juliana Harkavy] or Mr. Terrific [Echo Kellum] for. I believe we’re all fairly weak in sure methods that may be leveraged. From the angle of Wild Canine, I completely see the likelihood that his daughter is a sore spot for him to be taken benefit of, however I believe we even have to grasp who Rene is. We have established somebody who’s road savvy, but in addition [has a] navy background, has constructed numerous loyalty, is an individual stuffed with integrity, and he desires to guard his pals and be a group participant.
As Rick Gonzales states above, there’s undoubtedly incentive for Wild Canine to promote Oliver down the river. Having stated that, there are undoubtedly some questions Arrow followers ought to take into account. Utilizing somebody’s little one as leverage is a grimy trick to get somebody to do what you need, however is it a route Agent Watson would exploit to disclose Oliver Queen because the Inexperienced Arrow? Additionally, Wild Canine is thought for his loyalty, however does Rene maintain extra loyalty to his daughter or the Arrow group?
The concept that Wild Canine might betray Oliver, in addition to actor Rick Gonzales’ response to the query, make one other quote he gave EW simply as fascinating. The assertion got here following a remark that in a season the place everybody on Arrow is getting a nemesis, Wild Canine has none. Gonzales does state that he thinks he has a nemesis, however not in the best way that followers may anticipate, which means that his nemesis is just not an precise dangerous man. That quote undoubtedly makes it sound loads like the person within the hockey masks is about to snitch on the mayor of Star Metropolis!
Which, in fact, brings numerous skepticism as as to if or not Wild Canine is definitely the group member who is ready to rat out Oliver. Whereas it is definitely attainable Rick Gonzales spilled the beans on the Arrow midseason finale a day earlier than its airing, who at The CW can be utterly high quality with him doing that? Nobody. So if Thursday evening it’s revealed Wild Canine is the one keen to testify towards Oliver, there is a good likelihood Rick Gonzales is presently getting reamed by showrunners for laying all the things out earlier than the viewers received an opportunity to see it. Contemplating Gonzales does not have the repute guys like David Harbour and Tom Holland have in Hollywood, it appears protected to invest he is simply spinning an online of deceit.
